6/7/16
5-foot-11, 185-pound athletic frame.  A very functionally athletic kid. Has the look of a middle of the order bat at the next level from the left side. Is simple yet efficient mechanically incorporating his lower half through a toe turn load. Hands remain fluid during his bat tip before getting through the zone on an excellent path with above average strength and batspeed. Took a very impressive round of batting practice showing power potential to his pull side. Was able to keep his fluidity in game play and made hard contact on multiple occasions. Very good hitter. Registered an exit velocity of 91 mph and ran a 7.27 60-yard dash. With his foot speed he profiles as a corner outfielder. His best tool is his arm as he threw with 88 mph arm strength to home plate. Throws show good carry. Left handed pitching prospect that shows choppy rhythm in his delivery. Slow leg kick into a balance point, before speeding up down the mound. Long back arm action into a high ¾ slot with quick arm speed. Fastball sat 80-83 mph. Curveball sat 71-75 mph. Changeup sat 70-73 mph.
